What is Linux Reseller Hosting?

Linux Reseller Hosting is the term used to describe a reseller hosting service that is provided from a web server that is based on a Linux operating system. A number of Linux based operating systems are used as server operating systems and almost every major internet hosting provider runs a Linux based OS on their web servers.

Why choose Linux?

The Linux OS and Linux based servers using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Debian (Ubuntu), Fedora and open SUSE are well sought after because of their open-source software collaboration. Being open source means that it allows the source code to be used, modified and redistributed by anyone which would either be commercial or non-commercial under the GNU General Public License.

Linux hosting is often termed as L.A.M.P. hosting, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP/Perl/Python. Apache, an open source HTTP server management server, is considered as one of the most popular web server automation program and is available for Unix, GNU, FreeBSD, and Linux. MySQL is a relational database management system while PHP, Perl and Python are programming languages.
